I know this is an extremely long review, but I feel they deserve it! Unfortunately, I only stayed one night at this hotel. My mother and step dad took a double room and I had the single known as the nest. Upon first arriving we were greeted by the land ladie’s son as she was busy looking after her grandchild.... More

My wife and I along with our 10 year old daughter returned to the Old Post Office for our second stay as we loved our first so much. Jackie is an amazing hostess and really makes you feel at home. The rooms are spotless, beautifully decorated and thoughtfully equipped. Jackie's breakfasts have to be experienced to be believed! Top Class.... More

My husband and I are travelling around the UK and Europe and this B & B has been the best by far of any that we have stayed at during our travels. The Old Post Office is a lovely property oozing lots of charm and character. Our hosts Jackie and Roger excelled at making our stay a very happy and... More

I stay away on business regularly and this B&B is a fantastic find. The property is a beautiful old fashioned cottage with plenty of character. The beds are extremely comfortable. The room is always immaculate and spotlessly clean. All TVs have full Sky channel access, including sports and movies. There is free wifi to all rooms. It is located in... More

We absolutely loved our stay here. The hosts were extremely accommodating and very friendly. You obviously have a feel of home even though you are away. There is a lovely back garden which you can walk and lie in. A lovely wooden bench you can sit on to have a productive conversation or share a wine with a partner or... More

Arrival Sunday afternoon and welcomed by Jackie a professional opera singer who serenaded us with a song from La Traviata. The Old Post Office hasn’t been one for 100 years but still has the name and position in the high street. There are parts to the building that are original but Jackie and Roger have built on new rooms and... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of March last year after our wedding in Swindon. The rooms were very clean and beautifully laid out and special attention was paid to the fact that we were just married. They also have two Rolls Royce cars that are available for hire. We used one for the transport on our... More

Kindness and attention to detail mark this out as a first class bed and breakfast. The rooms are spotless and the hosts can't do enough to make you feel welcomed and comfortable. I would recommend The Old Post Office to anyone

We stayed here a few nights for new years. We were visiting the village since I used to live there to meet some old friends and celebrate new years. The Post Office has comfy beds, with possibly the friendliest owner in the world. Great breakfast served with some nice edible flowers from the owners garden, good tea but the coffee... More
